The Boxcar Children series, which included more than 120 books by several writers, centers around four runaway children who find shelter in an old train car. They solve mysteries, play with their dog Watch and enjoy freedom and adventures with a reckless abandon most kids only dream about. Which is precisely why the children were so popular for generations of elementary students. We’d be happy to see a revival of the adventure series considering the grandfather the children tried to escape from is now our editor and our boxcar is our shoe-box studio apartment.
